In the Speaker Nite series, we examine issues that were important during TR’s lifetime and continue to be relevant today.
This month, we welcome Thomas J. Reigstad, emeritus professor of English at SUNY Buffalo State and the author of Scribblin’ for a Livin’: Mark Twain’s Pivotal Period in Buffalo. Professor Reigstad will speak about the contentious relationship that America’s legendary humorist had with its President in the early 1900’s. In fact, in 1906, Twain wrote that TR was “far and away the worst president we have ever had.” Learn more about the dynamics of the relationship between these two immensely popular men.
